“World War II revisited”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

The Bong center is full of memories and history for all ages about World War II. There are lots of momentos to look at, individual accounts to hear and movies and momentos to see. The wall with the names is awesome. The P38 is beautiful! Great history for school children and adults alike.

“Very cool place! Not a museum fan but will be back again!”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Smaller museum with all the pizzazz! Movies, displays, refurbished P-38 plane! My favorite spot is the Binder of stories of what people did to receive their awards. I could read for hours!
Even the architecture is cool! A "must see"!
